I am assuming that the power does not go on or it immediately turns off as it is turned on.

Try the docking station or the 3.3 AC adapter to the camera. Plug that in to live power. If you hear the lens motor (by default the lens is retracted to closed position when plugged to AC power), then the camera is operational. If not, there is power failure with the camera.

If the lens motor work, then try to turn the camera while plugged to AC power. If it turns on, then there is something wrong with the battery or with the chamber. If the camera does not turn on, then check the button board for a bad power switch.

Check the LCD closely under a bright light when you do this test. You may see a faint a flash of display that disappears. I have not figured out what causes this. This would mean that camera power supply is working but nothing is telling for the camera to stay on.

Why wont HP M407 live view work?


If live view does not work is not to dramatic, but when you can't open pictures you took it becomes scary. With not to be able to open your pictures, does that mean the .jpg gives an error, or does the screen stay boac?
If so, I think we have to fear the image sensor or the connection to the image sensor is defect.. I don't think it will be worth trying to repair a 10 year old camera, but if there was never any leaking of batteries in the camera, that could have oxidised or even eaten contacts or cables, perhaps you once could open the camera, before trowing it in the bin.
Check if any flat cable came lose of something else gets you attention.
I would start saving for a new camera. (I'm saving to for a new camera, but for a different one)

Unsupported card


Make sure you're using an SD card, 2GB and smaller. The M407 won't work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.

Battery won't charge on my HP photosmart M407. Batteries are new. What else might be wrong?


It could be something wrong with the power board. If you have an external charger to charge the batteries. After fully charged tried to take as many pictures as you can. If the battery discharge fast, that mean something is wrong with the power board.

Hi, I am using HP Photosmart M407. I am having problem while copying or transfering fotos from camera to my laptop. I cldnt able to either see or copy some of the fotos from camera. What might be the...


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Batteries are Depleted


A camera rep told me that use about 2500mi (?) batteries instead of the 900 I was using otherwise the batteries will be depleted with just one picture. Digital cameras or any other digital piece of equipment needs the extra power. Make sure that your charger will charge the 2500 power ones fully.

My camera will not turn off !!!!!


WOW: All three Solutions Work Fine.
I Removed the 6 small bolts and took the camera apart.
lifted the tape and cleaned the contacts u;nder the tape with alcohol, let them dry then replaced the tape, lineing up the contacts on the tape with the ones on the body of the camera. Put the camera back together and put back the 6 bolts, inserted the batteries and presto: the camera worked. Thanks for the info , it really worked. Wes Reed
